Early wicket to Pakistan. That probably isn't all that bad because it gives enough time for Root to play himself in without pressure.

Can't be too critical. The management give these boys a license to play shots. When he scores hundreds doing it, people don't moan.

I don't know but maybe Jock was alluding to previous occasions when Moeen's been sent in to open for England even though he's not an opener and it didn't really work out for them.

Can always expect a few drops and misfields from Pakistan, I suppose.

Oh look swann could definitely get a shot but rashid and Ali are both in with a shout too, especially with their batting.

Weird to bowl first in such a wicket. Two drops now. And Sarfraz looking to give away as many singles as possible. Maybe going for a world record.

Pakistan might be dropping a few, but England seems really intent in giving them more and more chances. Having said that, this English team doesn't back down and will carry on playing in an attacking manner.

Hales tends to prosper when plays with a "dasher" to take the pressure of him. Bairstow has scored 40 odd, but at a low strike rate. IF and I know it is a big if Roy had scored 40 it would have been at a rate of +120 allowing Root/Hales time to play their natural game.

If England get anywhere around 300, I think they should win this as I don't rate Pakistan's batting very highly.

You missed my point - JB like MA has been fired into the opener position in a tough match despite not being an opener.

In summary a thankless task - and baffling from the selectors.

Fortunately Pakistan are probably the side you'd most want to face if you are going to produce a sub-par batting display, like this is looking so far.

How do we feel so far about England's performance? I am getting rather worried that we are taking it too cautiously. All well and good to preserve wickets, but we needed Bairstow to build on his excellent platform rather than tossing it away so cavalierly. Now Morgan and Root have been forced to consolidate somewhat just at the time when some acceleration could've put Pakistan under pressure.

So, Root too doesn't carry on. All up to Morgan, Stokes and Buttler?

It is playing like this that failed us for so many years

To those who are watching, is it the pitch or is it the bowling which is forcing this below-5 RPO from England thus far?

England under pressure in an ICC tournament yet again, and let us see if they do a South Africa today. Still early days, mind.

England seem to have been completely outplayed so far. Can they turn it around?

Dropping Roy sends a negative message and goes contrary to the whole 'no fear of failure' attitude that England were trying to develop.

It wasn't that he was getting out trying to play positively though, he just looked completely out of nick.

No idea why our batting display has been so insipid so far but I don't think it's got a thing to do with Roy being dropped.
